I’ve been reading a good book lately. It’s called RESTful Web Services and it’s by Leonard Richardson and Sam Ruby, O’Reilly Media, Inc, May 8, 2007, ISBN 0-596-52926-0. It got me past an old obstacle that I basically ignored when I initially encountered it, which is how to access the web through a proxy from Ruby. I updated my Rails homepage, a private affair intended to give me quick access to a number of links that I access frequently. While I was at it, I figured out how to display the RSS feed of this blog in the center column of the homepage.
So, how does this make me feel? Totally empowered and back on my game. I haven’t done any web development in so long that I was beginning to think I wouldn’t be able to catch up with all the new developments. I guess I knew better deep down but it was still exhilarating to finally update my homepage after literally years of not changing anything on it but the content.
I also started looking in to Amazon Web Services but that’s a topic for another post.
